I met the teacher who had this vanity plate. Come to find out she teaches in my town's school. She said she got it because in her young classroom when something was spilled, the children always asked for the spillage rag or cloth to clean up their messes. So I went with that! Kind of...
Carol got some cocoa,
Mom put it in a mug,
But when her elbow hit it
It crashed upon the rug!
“Calamity cloth!” Carol cried.
Tina wanted water
A tumblerful to drink -
Forgot to take the drain plug out
And overflowed the sink!
“Tragedy towel!” Tina trilled.
In Michael’s search for juice
He opened the fridge the door;
The juice lid hadn’t gone on tight
So juice splashed on the floor!
“Mishap mop!” Michael moaned.
Sammy wanted ice cream
Scrumptious chocolate chip;
It suddenly began to melt
Then slipped out of his grip!
“Spillage sponge!” Sammy spluttered.
With towel, mop, a sponge and cloth
They each cleaned up their places
Until there was no spillage left -
They even had clean faces!

Here are other S plates. I'd thought about trying to write a poem using all four plates, but then I wondered why I'd do that to myself when I have so much to do already. Shoot, why did I say that?
I have a problem obviously. You do not have to read this one.
The white caps
looked like snowfields
as we set off
the ocean squid
new villages to see
determined that at last
so fine and spillage free
and that the sails
that once were slack
would get their second wind
and even without
maps to guide
"That's all for now,"
the sailor said,
and headed off to bed
in hammock swayed
all night he stayed
he never slept
Through eyelids shut
He kept his watch

Oh, look, I did it - speaking of "I have a problem"...
I used all four - plus some - but I don't have a clue what it says or means - other than "I have a problem".
I probably should have kept it in a sealed envelope or locked drawer (if I had one), and not put it here. But this is where I wrote it, so this is where it is.
(Why would I put my name on this?)
